Each year our research programme is organised into specific areas of enquiry, which are explored throughout two themed Research Seasons.

Each season includes a range of research events, conferences, lectures, film screenings and discussion events, which are designed to showcase new thinking on different aspects of sculpture.

If you would like to propose a Research Season and work with us to develop a series of events, please contact Dr Clare O’Dowd, Reseach Curator: clare.odowd@henry-moore.org
